Yellow Trout Lily" or “Adder’s Tongue” (Erythronium americanum)
Found this beauty in the Spring amongst White Trilliums growing in dead leaves in the roadside bush in Waterloo,Ontario,Canada.
This is a macro shot – they are about the size of a trillium maybe smaller.
Here’s an interesting description:
" Among magic-users, the plant is known as Adder’s tongue, American Adder’s tongue, Serpent’s tongue and Adder’s mouth. It is used in healing magic. A practitioner soaks the plant in cold water and applies it to a wound or bruise until the spot grows warm, then buries the wet herb in muddy ground. The wound is believed to be cured by this procedure."
